Body Contouring Q&A

What is body contouring?

Body contouring is a term used to describe treatments that refine the shape and appearance of your body. Most commonly, the term refers to non-surgical treatments. 

At Medical Spa NP, body contouring treatments focus on reducing cellulite and tightening the skin. The team uses the Exilis Ultra 360 treatment platform to deliver results. 

How does the Exilis Ultra 360 system work?

The Exilis Ultra 360 is a non-surgical skin tightening treatment platform that uses a combination of radiofrequency energy and ultrasound to alter the contours of your body. Treatments are safe and effective and require very little advance preparation and no extensive recovery. 

During treatments, a handpiece directs ultrasound and radiofrequency waves into the deeper layers of skin and fat. The device offers five unique applicator tips that can target virtually any area of your body. 

Heat is generated to around 106-109 degrees Fahrenheit. Your body perceives that heat as damage and launches an immediate response. 

The production of new collagen cells occurs, a process that creates a new layer of padding beneath your skin. That level of heat also destroys the structural integrity of a portion of your fat cells. Once damaged, these cells can no longer store fat. 

The fat drains out, and your lymphatic system processes it. Once destroyed, those fat cells will not regenerate, leaving you with a more sleek and toned profile in the treatment area. Cellulite is reduced, and your skin is visibly tighter.  

What is Emsculpt®?

Emsculpt is a noninvasive, FDA-approved body contouring treatment that uses electromagnetic pulses to strengthen your muscles. Treatments also burn away unwanted fat. The combination of those effects can transform the treatment area, most commonly your abdomen and buttocks.

The Emsculpt platform triggers around 20,000 muscle contractions over the course of 30 minutes, a rate that traditional exercise simply cannot match. Your muscles respond by releasing chemicals that direct nearby fat cells to release fatty acids. 

The volume of fatty acids then destroys fat cells, which are processed and eliminated through your lymphatic system. This process builds new muscle tissue while permanently eliminating surrounding fat.
